It is exactly what Republicans feared. People WANT Obamacare. Talking Points Memo reports and displays this below:

  • SIGNING UP: Some of the crowd that turned out to sign up for new health insurance coverage as part of a session held by the state Insurance Department at the Clinton School.

On my recent check of the website for signup, it was up and running. And, as Brian Chilson's photos show, lots of Arkansans are anxious to take advantage of help being provided by the Insurance Department. Young people. People with children. They've been reached despite the Republican-controlled Legislative Council's effort to squelch advertising of the new program. They know that if people get health coverage they won't want it taken away. Thus the desperation now to pull the rug out from under Obamacare. Shameful and shameless. Good nicknames for Tiny Tim and Too Extreme Tom.

Govt. says 1 MILLION people have visited the website in the last 24 hours.
